Located in the heart of Napa Valley, Revana Family Vineyard is a vineyard and winery estate focused on producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. For Dr. Madaiah Revana, it is the culmination of his dream to grow and craft wines of exceptional quality.
In 1997, while visiting the Napa Valley, Dr. Revana discovered a small parcel of prime vineyard land just north of the town of St. Helena. He immediately sensed the property’s potential. The area was already known for producing some of the world’s most sought after Cabernet Sauvignon, and the property’s gravelly soils, sloped pitch, and excellent exposures seemed perfect for growing grapes. Studies of the soil composition confirmed that it was an ideal location for premium Bordeaux varieties. His next step was to build a team that could implement his vision.
After purchasing the property, Dr. Revana focused on assembling a team that could execute his vision. Jim Barbour clearly stood out among the many talented Napa Valley vineyard managers, and Dr. Revana asked him to develop and care for his property. Barbour then introduced Dr. Revana to winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett, who is widely considered one of California’s greatest winemakers. She too was impressed by the potential of the vineyard site and by Dr. Revana’s intent of crafting world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.
